Now stick 1 at the top of the downstairs stairwell blowing up. Just a pita going up and down stairs. What would realy do the trick is somhow blow air from the dinning rooms outer wall down into the basement. That should be the coolest area near the slider. That will get the air circulating

Put a return pathway from the far end of the house, and circulation will be established, it really works.
I had an appartment [at college] once that was just a room in a house. It had hot air heat, and it was a really cold room. When the door to the room was open, the hot air register pumped out lots of heat, but when the door to the room was closed for privacy the air basily shut off, the room was slightly pressureized and had no circulation. The room had no dedicated cold air return, the return was in the hallway. So I had to trade frostbite for privacy, [I kept the door open to avoid frostbite].

This would assist in pulling air through the house. Anybody ever try this?
I am thinking way to much.
